UFCW members work in all 50 states and in Canada, and belong to more than 400 local unions. UFCW boasts a large percentage of younger workers, many of those under the age of 35, in both full- and part-time positions. While the history of the UFCW begins in 1979, the his-tory of the various industries that make up the union is long and proud.
